Villwock going for 66th career win

Dave Villwock, driver of the U-1 Spirit of Qatar, has won 65 race wins, the most of any driver in history.  Last year, Villwock passed up Chip Hanuaer (61 wins) and then Bill Muncey (62 wins) to claim the title.

"I have to thank Chip Hanauer and Bill Muncey for the path that they have paved to made it all possible."

"Unbelievable, unbelievable to match the numbers, just unbelievable."

"It's a privilege to be in the same group as Bill Muncey and Chip Hanauer," said Villwock, who has been racing boats since age 16. "I talked to Bill when I was a little kid and he's always been a hero of mine."

Madison course will be two miles this year

Because of bridge construction, the Madison race course was scaled back to a mile and two-thirds with short straight-aways last year.  This year, however, it will be a two mile course, according to the Madison Courier.

Madison - hometown port of the U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto - is looking for a threepeat from driver Steve David, who won last year's race after a crash with Dave Villwock in the U-1 Spirit of Qatar in the final.
